Russell Malone

Georgia native Russell Malone, one of the great jazz guitarists, was 25 when he was hired as a sideman by the seminal organist Jimmy Smith. He went on to back Harry Connick, Jr. from 1990-1994 and spent four years working with Diana Krall, in addition to guesting on numerous recordings. Russell’s playing is deeply rooted in the blues and bebop and his no-nonsense approach is one of many reasons why he is so popular. With his quartet which also features Rick Germanson on piano, Gerald Cannon on bass, Lawrence Leathers on drums returns to Smoke this weekend.

Bill Charlap Andrea Canter

On Tuesday, November 4th through Sunday, November 9th and from November 11th through Sunday, November 16th, Bill Charlap's long-standing trio featuring Peter Washington on bass and Kenny Washington on drums will perform at the Village Vanguard. Charlap's influences reflect the seriousness with which he has studied the entire jazz lineage. "I admire the elegance of Tommy Flanagan, the harmonic language and bebop phrasing of Hank Jones, the linear aspects of Lenny Tristano. Then there are Teddy Wilson, Earl Hines, Art Tatum, Jimmy Rowles, Errol Garner, Thelonious Monk, Ellis Larkins, Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Kenny Barron, Roger Kellaway, Bobby Timmons, Wynton Kelly, Red Garland. People usually think of Bill Evans as a harmonist and romantic, but I'm influenced by Bill the bebop player, the rhythm section player he was when he worked for Miles."

George Coleman
Recently named an NEA Jazz Master, tenor saxophonist George Coleman is a revered name in jazz history for his crucial role in the Miles Davis Quintet of 1963-64 and his soulful, articulate playing on Miles’ Columbia albums Seven Steps to Heaven (1963), My Funny Valentine (1964) and Four & More (1966).  Coleman returns with a new quintet featuring tenorist Eric Alexander, whose 2014 Highnote album Chicago Fire was lauded as “one of the most vital” of his 30- plus releases by Jeff Tamarkin at JazzTimes.com: “His blowing is extraordinarily articulate and ecstatic, his tone bright and muscular, leadership and inspiration flowing nonstop.” The quintet also features a stelar rhythm section that includes Harold Mabern on piano, John Webber on bass, and George Coleman Jr. on drums. They appear at the Jazz Standard on Thursday, October 30th through Sunday, November 2nd.
